Barbara's ring sums up the essence of Barbara of Celje as a woman in a distinctly patriarchal society of the Middle Ages and emphasizes her unconventional role in history. It connects the past and the present with an outline of her personality and tells a half-millennium-old story in a modern way, in which women of today can also recognize themselves.SOLD OUT
The ring was inspired by a medieval signet ring, which is not only an identification symbol, but is also a personal signature of this remarkable woman.
Four mighty golden columns stand out the most in this ring, the middle having a separate turning system for the agate. The columns of the ring symbolize the four crowns of Barbara of Celje - the Hungarian, German, Bohemian and the crown of the Holy Roman Empire, which some older sources still cite, but modern ones mostly reject.VIEW COLLECTION
Barbara Celjska not only wore the crown, but also had a great influence on the reign. The black agate illustrates Barbara's dark side, as described by some contemporaries and as depicted in written sources. Its opposite is a shiny white agate of a milky transparent color, which reflects the colors of the surroundings and gold and captures all the layers to her personality.VIEW COLLECTION
